I removed all contents from the lower shelf. I, then removed both of the pull out drawers. Secondly, I removed the lower glass shelf and the glass support tray. At this point all four plastic shelf supports were accessible. I removed the inner screw from all four supports and replaced with four new shelf supports. Then reassembled in reverse order. Very easy to do!

compressor won't start

  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

Diagnosis: Defrost timer tested fine for continuity. Removed relay/capacitor unit from compressor (carefully). Tested compressor connections for continuity (OK). I tested the connection paths from timer to compressor and they were fine. At this point, I figured it could only be two things: [1]bad compressor or [2] bad relay/capacitor. I put the odds on the relay and bet the $70 on the part. Before installation, I marked the timer position with a sharpie. It's located on the ceiling of the refrigerator compartment. After the part installation, the compressor kicked in, purring quietly. Condenser coils warm, Evaporator coils cold. After a few hours I had ice in the freezer. I checked the timer markings with a compact mirror. It had advanced over a half turn, assuring that the timer motor functions. . Next, I went to the grocery store.

noisy fan motor, fridge & freezer not holding temp

  • Customer: Paul from Joshua Tree, CA
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

I took off the ice maker, disconected the wiring, took out the back of the freezer and took out the fan motor. Harder than I thought because of all the wiring back there, light, fan assembly etc. After that it was easy, took out the old motor & installed the new one. Runs much quieter now, and the fridge & freezer are much colder.
I did this for less than the price of a service call by a repair shop.

I did a few tests with the old ice maker and determined that it was the ice maker itself that was faulty. The replacement part I ordered exceeded my expectations in the time it took to get the part. I reused the arm, wire harness and clamps from the old icemaker. Then it was a simple install into the bottom freezer compartment, turning on the water supply and bingo...lots of ice cubes.

I was helping my son clean the refrigerator in the house he just bought and I accidentally broke the tempered glass shelf while cleaning it. I felt terrible. Glad I found your site. Your web site was really easy to use and you had the part to me in two days. It fit perfectly. Many thanks!

Freezer and Refrigerator temperture unstable

My frig was cycling between upper 30's to 60 degrees, the freezer would make ice one day then be melting the next. I started by replacing the CONDENSER FAN MOTOR, relatively easy, unplug the motor, ratchet off the three supporting screws, splice the wires together, attach the ground wire and reinstall. That didn't seem to fix my problem.

I then ordered the Defrost Thermostat and Defrost Timer, based on past advice these were frequently replaced parts. Both installs were easy, the DEFROST TIMER was installed first, one screw holds the housing in the fridge, just unplug and unclip and install the new one. Very easy. This didn't seem to correct the problem overnight. I then installed the DEFROST THERMOSTAT, which was a couple of screws in the back of the freezer and uncip and install the new one. Very easy. This seemed to help the freezer maintain temperature, but the frig was still cycling up and down in temp on a daily basis and I had the temp knob all the way to 7 when it would normally work at 4.

I ordered the TEMPERATURE CONTROL ASSEMBLY. Easy to install, in the same housing as the Defrost timer, unhook some wires, reinstall and run the coiled part toward the back of the housing. This fixed the problem and has maintained my temp in the mid to lower 40's at the setting of 4.

replacing thermostat did not help

Icecubes came out half-way, and refrooze. I figured out, that the melter does not work (HEATER in the icemaker) Voltage measured 105V no load. Studied the Internet, and folloved an advice: shorted the back wire and the blackwire with white stripes.these go to relay contacts. It seems, that the relay contacts are no good on Infrared receiver boaed. I turn off manually the icemaker, when needed

I was in the process of cleaning my refrigerator and pulled the shelf out at which point the crisper drawer glass shelf shattered.

I visited your Website used the model number to located the proper glass shelf for replacement. Ordered the item in your self-check out and was informed via email that I should receive the shelf in 5 to 7 business days. With much surprise I was emailed informing me when the item shipped received confirmation etc. The experience was seamless and much appreciated. I thought when this accident occurred it would be difficult to replace. Your services were great, and I would highly recommend your Website to anyone.Thanks!
